Christmas Post Day 14: Another Giveaway!


Two Fridays ago, I joined with Lori Catlin Garcia to give away a Fine Art Cross. That was cool.

Last Friday, I reviewed the new cd from Jeremy Camp and gave away one, thanks to the folks at Overture Media company. (I will be posting the winner's name on Monday!)

And this Friday, I am giving away three candles from Connie, who is selling candles to raise money to bring their newest child home from China. So, if you are looking for a great gift and a way to help out a family, this is perfect!

Here's what Connie had to say about what one lucky winner will receive:

12 oz. hand poured...triple scented. All are a milky white color...any scent will match anyone's home. 9 scents to choose from representing each Fruit of the Spirit. Different Bible verses on each one to go along with each fruit of the spirit. Poured in a square jar with extra cute packaging...great for a Christmas or Birthday gift. All scents have been tested in our own homes. We've been making candles for over 10 years. The winner will choose their 3 favorite scents from the right-hand margin of Connie’s blog

Who doesn't love candles?? And I love her idea of combining the scents with the fruits of the spirit! Since you win three, that means that you could keep one and give two away, or package them all together as a beautiful, impressive gift for someone in your life.

Please visit Connie's blog, then leave me a comment telling me which one you like best for your chance to win this most excellent prize! Thanks Connie for doing this giveaway. You have all of our prayers as you seek to bring another child into your wonderful home through the miracle of adoption.
Pin It!

I think I need a little gentleness!

Thanks,

I need some Joy - Buttercream crunch right now. Yesterday my husband got word that come January 13th he might not have a job so a little joy might be nice.

Donna said...

I would like some the scent of joy wafting through my house right now.I have been learning a lot about joy these last years with our blended family of nine. The Lord has delivered us out of miles of miry clay and I am learning joy is a action and it is a lot like buttercream crunch. Without the crunch mingled throught the "ooey, gooey" sweetness, it would not be nearly as delightful.
Thanks,
Donna

Stacey said...

I think I need a little love! Seriously, my daughter's favorite is Sweet Pea. what a perfect gift to pass on:)

Shannon said...

WOW a woman after my own heart...I am starting a non profit to build a community of homes for married couples to live at to do foster care in hopes of getting waiting children adopted...before they age out of the system...I have a passion for adoption! I may just hop over there and buy a candle or two after the holiday rush is over...Ü What a great idea. www.hopebloomsmn.org

Thanks for showing us this. I never did hear who won the Cross pendant..I like to see that kind of stuff. Is there a link to see who the blessed person was/is?

Goodness is sitting on my mantle this morning as a reminder to myself of my purpose. And the great thing is it smells fabulous.

Blessed Family said...

The peace candle smells great and they burn a long time! Connie is such a wonderful person. Love your blog... I love the peace candles !

Stephenie said...

Faithfulness sounds great to me! But then, so do Joy, Gentleness and Peace. What a cool fundraiser.

Sweet Pea said...

Self Control would be my pick right now. With all the Christmas goodies being plentiful right now I'm having a hard time practicing self control. Plus... my favorite candle scent is...baked apple pie.

Bonita said...

I'd like to try a little gentleness- cinnamon toast.

Karen Ehman-The Keep it Simple Woman said...

Dawn @ My Home Sweet Home said...

Ooooh, I'll go for Patience: vanilla grapefruit. :-)

Mrs. U said...

Ooh!!! Midnight Pomegranate sounds wonderful. Actually, I just love the name "Goodness" that Connie gave it!!! Such a calm thing, goodness.

His,
Mrs. U

Jennifer said...

Well if I went on scent alone I would go for Baked Apple Pie (or Pumpkin Pie, or Sweet Pea, or Cinnamon Toast, or Buttercream Crunch...who am I kidding any of the except maybe the Vanilla Grapefruit...not such a fan of either of those scents). But if I was going on the "fruit" I need it would have to be patience!!! Thanks for the giveaway!!!

Chatty Kelly said...

"Goodness" sounds GOOD to me!

Debra said...

Nice Giveaway. The two scents that sound wonderful are Peace-Cinnamon Bun and Gentleness-Cinnamon Toast.

Laurie Ann said...

What an awesome giveaway! I did a whole series of posts on the fruits of the Spirit on my blog not too long ago! How cool is that. I'd say my favorite is the Self-Control - Baked Apple pie, not only for the scent but for the reminder to bear that fruit. Great post, Marybeth. You are too sweet.

Kelly said...

I think Patience Vanilla Grapefruit sounds lovely!
Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

Elizabeth said...

I think I'd go with kindness.

Sallie said...

You can never have too much JOY!

tina said...

I ordered the Faith candle from Connie a while back and just LOVE it. I'd like to try the vanilla grapefruit next.

Thank you for highlighting Connie and her family and highlighting the spirit of adoption!

Lehrerin said...

Patience all the way - I always need some extra patience!

Deb said...

Love, Joy and Peace sound good to me. What a great idea.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Joyful said...

Although all of the candles sound wonderful, I would have to go with JOY!!!! What a very creative and lovely idea!

We are to be the fragrance of Christ. These candles are a wonderful reminder of the Fruit of His Spirit.

Blessings,
Joy

MDearing said...

LOVE THIS!! I could use some SELF CONTROL and know who I would share the others with-a friend that is celebrating her first Christmas with her "China Doll" and another that just started the process to adopt twin boys!

Thanks for a great contest!

I think I'd enjoy them all but if I had to pick one it would be

LOVE (sweet pea).

Julie Coleman said...

I would choose faithfulness, because of all of the characteristics of God that are most precious to me, I would say His faithfulness tops the list. I would love for that faithfulness to characterize my life as well. I'm good in the short haul but run out of enthusiasm fast-- something I need to work on continually (which requires faithfulness. . . sigh).

I love your blog, especially your candidness. You are an encouragement to me!!

Paul and Doris said...

Peace looks like my favorite. Thaks for choosing me.

Jill and Rick said...

Mmmmm, Goodness sounds sooo good!

Faithfulness ~ Pumpkin Pie

Sounds like a wonderful scent.

MimiG said...

Gentleness - Cinnamon Toast - brings back wonderful memories for me. My mother used to make it for us Christmas morning. We would have that and COFFEE! Of course our coffee was a cup of hot milk with maybe a tablespoon of coffee in it, but to a 6 year old - it was COFFEE, just like Mamma and Daddy's....

Self Control - Apple Pie sounds heavenly to me. My siblings were adopted from South Korea, I was domestic adoption and we adopted our 2 oldest kiddos from foster care. God bless this family in their adoption journey.
